Today, one of the major thrusts of the Krylov State Research Centre is the development and implementation of stealth technologies intended for minimizing the risk of ships being detected and destroyed by weapons sensing the electromagnetic and hydrophysical signatures.
The special-purpose research division focusing on the discreteness and signature reduction of Russian naval ships was set up at Krylov back in 1960. Over half a century a new mature field of research referred to as ship electrodynamics has been developed at this Centre using unique experimental facilities to generate valuable insights into understanding of hydrophysical fields and a broad range of developments introduced on ships of various types to form a solid scientific & methodological basis for addressing the emerging challenges.
Following the modern trends in this field the Krylov Centre is focusing on the development of
- Active signature management systems for surface ships and submarines using digital data processing techniques;
- Highly efficient revolutionary techniques for management of above-water signatures of surface ships using the latest nanotechnologies.
Since the 1990s the Krylov Centre has been engaged in the conversion of naval technologies for commercial applications like corrosion protection of marine structures, electromagnetic compatibility and habitability of ships, offshore structures as well as industrial buildings and residential housing.
Krylov performs the studies intended to ensure the safety of marine environment in connection with the construction and operation of ocean engineering structures.
